Medical Problems During Pregnancy
Prenatal nurses and/or care providers help mothers who are expecting, to avoid and recognise health problems that might present before, during, or after birth. The specialists aid the mothers in learning and implementing healthy habits during pregnancy. Prenatal nurses must possess proficient communication skills to perform these tasks effectively. While this role may appear straightforward, there is much more to prenatal nursing than one might think.
Maternal death can often result from medical rather than obstetric complications. The quality of care provided in these scenarios is crucial to the outcome.
